Thinking is considered to be a positive thought, overthinking isn’t. The bombardment of constant thoughts doesn’t give you clarity of thoughts nor does it allow you to come to a logical conclusion. A mind prone to overthinking is bound to make erroneous judgments in day-to-day activities.
Overthinking may stem from feeling anxious or worried about something. You feel that continuous thinking may help you avoid an imminent problem. Stress also tends to be on of the primary reasons to cause overthinking in someone. To live in the moment is to be as carefree as a child, being stress-free and leaving everything in the past.
Putting meditation into use will set your perspective right. When overthinking plagues your mind it can give rise to allusions, doubts, suspicions, and regret. Meditation will help you overcome these negative thoughts and help you declutter your mind. It will help you align and prioritize your thoughts, so you know where you stand.
Calm yourself and watch the world slow down around you.
Here are some general guidelines you must abide by before you begin your meditation.
STEP 1: Find the right spot
Find yourself a place where you find peace. Away from the hustle and bustle of your everyday source of stress, comfortable and safe space where you can focus on yourself. It must be peaceful and a well-lit area.
STEP 2: Eat to your mind’s content, not your tummy’s.
Eat enough food to keep you going through the day. It should just be the perfect amount of food in your belly. You eat too much, you’ll feel lethargic and drowsy; you eat less you’ll irritable and angry. Eat the right amount of food that makes you feel good and active. Only then will you be able to meditate efficiently.
STEP 3: Move before meditating.
Just how you warm up before running or working out, move a little to be more mindful of what you’re going to do. Walk a few paces and take some deep breaths to feel more comfortable in the process.
STEP 4: Take it easy
Make sure you meditate for 10-20 minutes. Do not be in a hurry to open your eyes. A few light stretches with eyes closed helps you gently ease back into activity.
There’s no timeline for you to perform on. Take your time to practice meditation and breathe. Keep breathing until you feel better.
